Party After Dark Entertainment

Ra Ra Riot (DJ set)
Acclaimed indie rock band Ra Ra Riot are fresh off the release of their new album, Beta Love, and will headline the Party After Dark with a DJ set by Wes Miles (singer) and Matt Santos (bass player).

Youngblood Hawke (DJ set)
Self-described as a mixture of pop, rock, indie, dance, and even a little hip hop, Youngblood Hawke (DJ set) will open up the Party After Dark.

East Garden Lounge, Food Trucks, & Silent Disco
Kick off your heels and relax under the stars with a cocktail in one hand and a specialty dessert in the other. The East Garden will be transformed into a posh camp site, complete with luxe camp-style lounges by Shelter Co., lanterns, photo booths and hot toddies!

Plus, eat fresh Neapolitan-inspired pizza with Del Popolo—a mobile pizzeria & a s’mores flavored treat from Cupkates.
